The Avengers: Biggest Opening Ever [Box Office Results]

The Avengers: Biggest Opening Ever [Box Office Results]
Part of looking at movies does involve the business side of show business. We try to have a little fun with it, as each week Tim makes his predictions as to how movies will perform at the Box Office. Then, on Sundays, we look at how Tim’s predictions fared. I’ll be honest: when Tim gave me his predictions for the week, I thought he was a little off kilter, like usual. I mean, we just had records... 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 3D [Review]

This is it, the movie event of the summer – the final chapter in the highly successful and cherished Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling. The most anticipated and potentially highest grossing film of 2011 (bringing in $92 million on its opening day alone and that’s just stateside) finally makes its way into cinemas across the globe: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. David... 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 [Review]

It’s been ten years since Harry Potter’s cinematic adventure began with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Over the past decade, we’ve watched the boy wizard discover his hidden talents and tragic past, experience the joy of Quiddich, build everlasting friendships, find romance, and face death repeatedly as he has faced off against the most evil wizard the world has ever known. Now, with... 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 [Xbox 360]

Most video game review readers whilst reading a review will skip through all the fancy words and sometimes check out the pros and cons, maybe a tagline or two and focus primarily on the end rating. Some will even stop to look at the pretty pictures. I recently reviewed Part 1 of Deathly Hallows and to be quite honest, the only thing different between this game and the first is the title – with maybe... 

Weekly Blend #276 – Mischief Managed One Last Time

It’s our last chance to talk Harry Potter with the final film in theaters. Both of our show reviews wind up being more anecdotal than review, but sometimes that’s how it is when something reaches the end. We also discuss the Neflix fiasco (with some explicit language the situation calls for) and look at Paul Newman’s The Hustler (unfortunately The Color of Money got caught up in one... 

Harry Potter Rock Band [Xbox 360]

I would not have believed it either, except when I came home from work one day, I found a huge coffin-like box sitting by my side door from FedEx with a return address for Harmonix. Upon opening the aforementioned coffin, I was pleasantly surprised to find an Xbox 360 game with unique controllers and costumes all related to the Harry Potter universe. My first impressions were somewhat mixed –... 

Lego Harry Potter – Years 1-4 [Xbox 360]

A new Lego game is out, which means hours of family friendly game play, jumping around, building things out of the famous Lego blocks, and tossing spells at each other. That’s right, Lego has moved from the realms of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Batman, and stepped into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with Lego Harry Potter – Years 1-4. Much like the previous games, Lego Harry Potter follows... 

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part One [Wii]

I admit it. I am a fan of Harry Potter, and have been since the first book. I never dressed up and waited outside of bookstores at midnight waiting for the next installment, however I have picked up each book the day after they came out and sat at a pub (since a bar would just be wrong) and read the entire novel cover to cover while the waitresses would come by and refill my Black and Tan. With... 

Weekly Blend #275 – Eat Me Before I Drown

We’re back with our second week of Paul Newman movies, one of which inspires the title of this week’s show. First up we review Horrible Bosses and get into why Harry Potter is this week’s big pick. Then it’s into Newman’s Cool Hand Luke, Sometimes a Great Notion, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, two of which we didn’t care for as much as we had hoped. We even fit in time... 

Trailer Park: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, Trailer 2

I usually leave the trailer park stuff to Margaret, only stepping in if she’s too busy to fit the column into her schedule. This week she wasn’t too busy, giving a nice write-up of Larry Crowne. I couldn’t let the latest (and probably last) trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 go by unnoticed however, so you get two trailer park entries this week. The last couple of Harry Potter...
